Description and Details
This solid silver pocket snuff box is made with 800 grade silver (Hallmarked 800 German Standard) with a gilt interior. The dimensions of this snuff box are rather unusual with a thin and rectangular lid and base featuring a polished finish with an engine turned lid and a high relief chased thumb-piece. The centrepiece is monogrammed with the phrase "lucky for some" and the initials "LA". Unfortunately, the interior maker's mark is worn thus the maker cannot be identified, however, the design of the mark and the overall box construction is similar to counterpart snuff boxes of the 20th Century. The hinge and lid closure function flawlessly with a smooth and tight closure.
Due to the thin yet relatively wide dimension of the box, it makes for an ideal portable snuff/pill case - fitting in all types of pockets with ease and comfort. A great addition to a collection or for personal use on an outing.
